Leeds United Premier League squad: Bamford, Phillips and Meslier all retained

Marcelo Bielsa's side earned rave reviews for their attacking performances

The 20 Premier League clubs that took part in the 2020/21 season have submitted lists of players they will be retaining in their squads, and ones they will be releasing.

All clubs must submit their respective lists by June 23.

It is worth noting that player contracts typically will run until June 30, and therefore players who are soon to be out of contract are still on the 'retained' list at the time of publishing.

Leeds United's return to the Premier League following a 16-year absence was a huge success.

Marcelo Bielsa's side signaled their intent from the off, running reigning champions Liverpool ragged before going down to a 4-3 defeat.

Their commitment to attacking football earned them plenty of plaudits and new admirers, and a top-half finish was no fluke by any means.

Patrick Bamford showed he can score goals at the highest level while Kalvin Phillips impressed England manager Gareth Southgate enough to earn a call-up for the upcoming Euro 2020.
